Contacting Mental Health Triage

A mental health Triage service is a 24/7 emergency contact point for people experiencing a mental health crisis. The name Triage is somewhat misleading as it is not a word used in everyday language. According to Wikipedia, the definition of Triage is as follows:- Triage is the process of determining the priority of patients' treatments based on the severity of their condition.

For all intents and purposes however, in the case of mental health, this is the service you can contact at anytime and who will assist you in time of crisis. They will arrange to assess you, provide immediate medical service, follow up calls and help you through a crisis. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, then you can contact Triage at anytime and their number for the Loddon area is on the right hand side of every page on this site.

Many people however when experiencing a crisis will rely on a carer or friend to help them through. The purpose of this page and the information contained herein is to assist those people when contacting Triage.
